Saffron Grill Restaurant Review

: Although this Persian kebab restaurant is really a take-out place, the small dining room sparkles, appealing to the upscale folks in nearby neighborhoods. The food matches the mood, too. The kubideh kebab (ground beef) stars a proper seasoning balance for the tender meat. And the basket of fresh bread wedges comes with enough yogurt dip to see you through the meal. Look for daily specials, such as ghormeh sabzi (beef with cilantro and parsley), eggplant stew and gheymeh (yellow split peas with beef and onions).
